( an interesting article on Fox news about a few of the smear stories aimed at Donald trump , I say a few of them cause there has been many many more )


White House

John Stossel: The incredible smear machine aimed at Team Trump


By John Stossel
·Published February 08, 2017
· FoxNews.com


Oh, no! I did it again.

It was a foolish mistake. But I slipped.

I read The New York Times.

This is bad for my health, because I get so mad at the smug socialist spin, but how can I not read it? It's my hometown paper. My wife wakes me up with indignant questions like, "How can you say government is too big? The Times says ... "

Aargh! Nearly every day brings a new Times outrage.

Saturday, a front-page story smeared Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder.

The story begins, "Decades before President Trump nominated him ... Puzder went to battle with federal labor regulators ... "

Wait a second. "Decades before"? They went back decades to criticize him? Actually, three decades -- to 1983, when as a young lawyer, Puzder represented a client whom the Labor Department accused of squandering union money.

The Times went on to say: "He has repeatedly argued that economic regulations stifle economic growth."

Puzder "argued" that? Regulations obviously stifle growth. That's their purpose -- to protect workers by putting limits on businesses' pursuit of profit. Regulation is a big reason this post-recession recovery has been so weak.

In just the last 10 years, the Department added regulations that require another 70 million hours of paperwork.

Monday: "Trump's F.D.A. Pick Could Undo Decades of Drug Safeguards."

Oh, no! Trump will poison America with unsafe drugs!

President Trump hasn't actually made his FDA pick yet, but the Times worries "his push for deregulation might put consumers at risk."

The reporter cites thalidomide, which, 60 years ago, "caused severe birth defects in babies whose mothers had taken the drug in pregnancy. Since then, the F.D.A. has come to be viewed as the world's leading watchdog for protecting the safety of food and drugs, a gold standard ... "

Fool's gold. The FDA protected American babies from thalidomide not by being smart, but by being so slow. By the time thalidomide neared approval, its bad effects were visible in Europe.

The Times eagerly reports damage done by drugs: "Drug safety watchdogs point to examples like the painkiller Vioxx, which was withdrawn from the market ... "

But "invoking Vioxx as the icon for such looseness is itself ignorant looseness," says my medical researcher brother, Tom. "FDA approvals are tradeoffs between benefits and risks. The FDA knew about Vioxx's risks. It was the company, not the FDA, that withdrew the painkiller. Many doctors now say it was an ill-advised move that deprives patients of a good alternative. Vioxx's risks are no greater than painkillers like Motrin sold over the counter.

The Times avoids detailing just how onerous today's regulation is. The reporter says, "The agency sets a 10-month goal for approving standard drugs."

Gee, goals are nice, but does the agency honor them? The Times doesn't say. It also doesn't mention that the 10-month goal only applies to the final step of regulation -- after all trials are done. The entire process takes an average 16 years and $2.6 billion.

Americans want protection from bad drugs, but how many of us suffer needless pain, or die, while waiting those 16 years? How many die because a drug's developers cannot raise $2.6 billion?

One more smear:

"President Trump's pick to lead the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, has aggressively moved to roll back consumer protection regulations."

Consumer protection? No. Socialist idiocy.

The Times says Pai "stopped nine companies from providing discounted high-speed internet service to low-income individuals."

No, he stopped a $9.25/month government subsidy for high-speed internet.

"He withdrew an effort to keep prison phone rates down," says the Times.

No, he stopped FCC lawyers from fighting about in-state phone calls because the FCC has no constitutional authority there.

Utterly reasonable. But the Times quotes an advocacy group saying, "Chairman Pai is showing his true stripes ... [doing] favors for the powerful corporations."

Please. Someone. Tell The New York Times that socialism was tried. It doesn't work.

Sean Hannity: Alt-left seeks to take down Trump at America's expense


Sean Hannity

By Sean Hannity
·Published February 08, 2017
· FoxNews.com

The legal challenge to the president's executive order is just one of the many tools in the sinister master plan to obstruct Trump

The Democratic Party and its alt-left liberal allies are plotting, planning and scheming to slow down, stop, and even destroy President Trump and the agenda that America chose in November.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, left-wing agitator David Brock, the founder of Media Matters and a huge Clinton ally, hosted a private getaway in a ritzy resort last month. More than 100 rich liberal donors were there, and they all got a confidential memo outlining Brock's plan to take down President Trump by filing endless lawsuits against the president and even seeking his impeachment.

Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” reached out to Media Matters for comment on the Washington Free Beacon report, but they did what they always do. They ignored our questions and took a shot at me.

Brock's plan is not a secret. News outlets like Politico and The Hill have reported on his post-election plans to go after President Trump every single day. You’re already seeing it with lawsuits over Trump’s travel ban and the relentless obstruction of his cabinet appointments.

To stop Trump’s completely constitutional travel ban, which blocks people from seven hostile or failed nations that all happen to be majority Muslim, the radical alt-left has gone court and judge shopping. They have found the most liberal federal appeals court in the country to battle the Trump administration.

Never mind that the law which the Trump administration is using to defend the president's constitutional executive order is very clear and unambiguous.

"Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, [the president] may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he made deem to be appropriate," reads the relevant statute.

The alt-left knows this, and knows it must find liberal courts and judges who will take their side no matter what the law says. What they can't get done at the ballot box or legislatively, they seek through judicial activism.

The alt-left's goal is to hurt President Trump any way it can. It makes no difference too them if the American people are put in danger. The Democratic Party and its allies are willing to gamble with your life. The president is not.

That's what this debate is about.

Media Buzz

Media helped force out Flynn, but leakers' real target is Donald Trump


Howard Kurtz

By Howard Kurtz
·Published February 15, 2017
· FoxNews.com


It was close to midnight when I had to kill a column I’d already filed for Fox News and write about the Michael Flynn resignation.

The inescapable irony: The spiked column said that some positive stories for President Trump, such as his meetings with the leaders of Canada and Japan, were being drowned out by the controversies surrounding the White House—some self-inflicted, some overblown by the media.

The Flynn situation was another battle between the president and the press, and in this case the Washington Post story about the national security adviser’s contacts with the Russian ambassador made it impossible for Flynn to survive. Unlike some of the stories dismissed by Trump as fake news, this one could not be waved away—especially because Flynn had misled Mike Pence about what happened in those pre-inaugural conversations.

This was good reporting, and Pence’s televised defense of Flynn was based on an earlier piece by Post columnist David Ignatius, disclosing that Flynn had a post-Christmas call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

At the same time, the Post story would not have been possible without the cooperation of nine unnamed senior officials who furnished the leaked information. They wanted Flynn out and were trying to undermine the president.

Trump, who has also been hit by unflattering leaks about his calls with foreign leaders, seized on this issue. “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?” he tweeted. “Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?”

But it must be said that the leakers’ information was right on target. And that in the end Flynn’s problem was not so much discussing U.S. sanctions with Russia before Trump took office as misleading the VP, as Kellyanne Conway stressed on the morning shows yesterday.

The messaging has been decidedly mixed. Conway, based on the information she had, told MSNBC on Monday afternoon that the president had full confidence in Flynn. Hours later he resigned.

Conway insisted in her interviews on “Today,” “GMA” and “Fox & Friends” that it was the retired lieutenant general’s choice to resign. But when Sean Spicer briefed the press yesterday afternoon, he flatly said that Trump asked for Flynn’s resignation—meaning he fired him—after things reached critical mass.

The debacle doesn’t end the story, as often happens when a top official is forced out under a cloud.

The Post reported yesterday that Acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned the White House three weeks ago that Flynn was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail and that she believed he had misled administration officials about the calls. Yates is the Obama holdover later fired by Trump for refusing to defend his temporary travel ban.


That revelation raises the serious question of why the White House didn’t act sooner on that warning, well before any of this became public, and just what the president knew about these matters.
Now there’s media chatter about whether these events will lead to a broader White House shakeup.

And here’s a footnote: Michael G. Flynn, the former official’s son, drew attention last year for tweeting about various conspiracy theories, including the “Pizzagate” fiction tying Hillary Clinton to a supposed child sex ring at a Washington restaurant. It was Mike Pence who said that Flynn’s son had nothing to do with the Trump transition team. But that was wrong, and officials soon confirmed that Trump had fired the younger Flynn from the transition team over the tweets.

Flynn Jr. reactivated his account and tweeted yesterday: “The disinformation campaign against my father won.”

Are folks still thinking there is a smear going on?

It would appear that the media has woken up and are asking for answers like never before.(Hannity excluded ) Fox News on Sunday with Chris Wallace didnt back down and leave lame answers floating about when he interviewed Stephen Miller and his whacky assertations. Of course the others CNN et al were already hammering him but they all seem to stick to facts and not opinions .

Stephen Miller is the worst thing the President can have. A pompous blowhard who thinks he has risen to some level of power that allows his delusions to stand as facts. Sean Spicer has a hard job , he has to answer on his feet, Miller doesnt have that issue, he gets time to craft things and he does a horrible job of it. ("3 Surpreme Court Judges say you are wrong Stephen" )

We have seen the results when the head guy starts to go after the Judicial branch....havent we?

The most outrageous recent incident involved calling Melania Trump a hooker -- that was the son of the celebrated Nora Efron and Carl Bernstein, of Watergate fame. Bernstein had to admit that the charge had no substance, and issue a public apology.

Carlos Slim, a Lebanese who operates out of Mexico, owns the New York Times, and recently the paper had to layoff five floors of reporters. Cost-cutting. The Washington Post is owned by the CEO of Amazon. Both papers are in obvious decline, sadly.

Just to clarify a point here, he never did put that in print. It wasnt intended to go to print, it was Emily Ratajkowski who put it out there.

Doesnt make it ok, or better, it is outrageous, whoever it wasnt he that put that into print.

Im thinking all newspapers are in some sort of decline.

( the Huffington post has to have the most outrageous post of them all , they published an article that claims Ivanka Trump wants to have sex with Justin Trudeau , I wish I made this one up )



February 15, 2017

Huffington Post actually suggests Ivanka Trump wants to have sex with Justin Trudeau

Rebel Staff



The ultra left-wing website Huffington Post started suggesting Ivanka Trump was interested in having sexual relations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In an article titled “Ivanka Trump Looked Thirsty AF While Glancing At Justin Trudeau”, 'trends reporter' Elyse Wanshel writes “Ivanka Trump had something in common with many men and women in the U.S. when she laid eyes on Justin Trudeau during the Canadian Prime Minister’s trip to the White House on Monday. We’ll let you try and figure out what.”

The article goes on to quote random Twitter users who claim Ivanka has the hots for Justin. The author of the article, Wanshel, posted her story to the social media website along with the caption, “She'd tap that like a maple tree” - the same caption used on Facebook by the HuffPost Weird News page.

Or perhaps Ivanka was just stunned a substitute drama teacher ended up becoming Prime Minister. Which sounds a lot crazier on paper than a reality TV show host becoming President.

SOUND OFF in the comments with your thoughts.

COMEDY


Ivanka Trump Looked Thirsty AF While Glancing At Justin Trudeau

And the internet took notice.

 02/14/2017 03:54 pm ET | Updated 5 hours ago


Elyse Wanshel 

Trends Reporter, The Huffington Post



Ivanka Trump had something in common with many men and women in the U.S. when she laid eyes on Justin Trudeau during the Canadian Prime Minister’s trip to the White House on Monday. We’ll let you try and figure out what.

Justin Trudeau speaks during a roundtable discussion on women entrepreneurs and business leaders. Ivanka Trump is all like “Uh-huh.”


During his first face-to-face visit with President Donald Trump, the Canadian Prime Minister had a round table discussion about women in the workforce. Ivanka attended the roundtable and “helped recruit participants and set the agenda,” according to the Associated Press.


But based on pictures taken by Getty images and Reuters from that discussion, it doesn’t look like female entrepreneurship was the only thing on Ivanka’s mind.


And Twitter, as it does, took notice.


Here are a few more things she might have been thinking based solely on photos.


“Oh! Hi, Justin! Sure you can sit next to me because my husband, Justin, I mean, Jared, won’t be attending, Justin.”




Kevin Lamarque / Reuters


”Jared, Jared, Jared, I am married to Justin. Dammit, Jared.”




Mark Wilson via Getty Images


” … Ivanka Trudeau, Ivanka Trump-Trudeau, Mrs. Trudeau … “



SAUL LOEB via Getty Images


”More like Justin Tru-DAT.”




SAUL LOEB via Getty Images


”Oh snap, someone just said my name … “





Mark Wilson via Getty Images


“Ugh, I’d tap that like a maple tree.”




Kevin Lamarque / Reuters


”Yeah, speak French to me.”




Kevin Lamarque / Reuters


“OK, time for a cold shower.”

RCO, is there something we should be aware of with your linked posts?

All of it for the most part is true news.

Puzder has stepped away from being nominated.

Why wouldnt someone use Trumps tweets as fodder in court.

Flynn has admitted to being a liar to the VP.

Do not confuse the news with being anti Trump. They are not having to make up any of this. Trumps is supplying them just fine.

I cannot see your reasoning Sir.

Ok the Ivanka googly eyes one is kind of weird but thats humour. It goes both ways.

but these same media outlets never criticised Obama on this level , if we were able to look back and see the tweets CNN sent out when Obama was president I doubt we'd find very many negative ones going after what he did or who he nominated


a % of what they post is legitimate news and the rest is simply a liberal bias that is being directed at trump cause there upset he won in the first place

they claim the Ivanka post is humour , but would they have printed the same article if it had been about Michelle Obama ? I think we know that had been a no

ok but the media are the one's creating the idea of these "trump gaffes " there going after him on literally everything and criticising anyone associated with him

its beyond the normal level of reporting done to keep in check an average government

there obviously doing it cause they don't like trump


if we are able to look back does anyone think we'll even find anything this aggressively negative being sent out by these outlets on Obama ? I doubt the press loved him , it didn't matter to them that he didn't accomplish much it was still better than another republican instead

but to further my point does anyone thing the media would of held the Clinton administration to these same standards if they had won the election ?

would they be going thru her cabinet picks with a fine tooth comb trying to find a reason to DQ them from office ?

would they be arguing with her press secretary at every opportunity and over every comment they had made to the press ?

I think we all know that would not have been the case , CNN had pretty much already declared her the winner of the election until trump actually won on election day

this amount of extreme negativity has not been unleashed on a president in years If ever , perhaps it was on George Bush but he didn't take this much criticism until his final few years when he had become less popular , I don't recall this much negativity from the start
